Songbook

What colour has the soul

Text: Udo Lindenberg; Musik: Udo Lindenberg

USA - South Africa
there's no need to go so far
look around just where you are
see the people standing there, going back
they've got the past in their heads
they ignore the tragedy all around
'cause the see only what they see

They see the color of your skin, my friend
and that's enough for them to lift up their hand
they still don't know that only fairness leads to peace
what can we do to set them free from prejudice

What is the color of your soul
what is the color of your heart
what harmony fits your mentality
the man who's assessin' you with your complexion in his view
and not your characteris, let me see a color too
is like the dirty past, so cruel, so dark is he
whatever can he be?

What color has the soul
what color has the conscience
what color has humanity
see no colors just see the worth of a man's personality

Mozambique - Rhodesia
I can count a hundred lands
first look around, see where you are
see some forward-looking people, straight ahead
they've got good will in their hearts
they recognize the urgency of the change
see, what humanity requires from you and me

They say the world is a rainbow, my friend
let's make a chain around the world hand in hand
they realize that life is full of possibilities
to change the things and make the world a place of love and peace

What color has the soul
what color has the conscience
what color has humanity
see no colors - see the worth of a man's personality
